I got a jade pendant in 2003. When I went to China, my mother-in-law gave it to me for a gift. This was the first time I met my mother-in-law because my wife and I were married in Venezuela. My mother-in-law couldn’t go there to participate in our party. This is an important object for me because this is the first thing my mother-in-law gave me. Jade in our culture means good luck, and all good things.
